About this property

Originally built in the late 1800's, this unique one-bedroom dairy conversion sits on a large plot with off-road parking and garaging in one of the area's most sought-after and well-regarded villages.

Dairy Cottage has a covered veranda that leads to a rear entrance porch with a door into the kitchen. The accommodation comprises a breakfast kitchen with fitted units and integrated appliances. There is a separate cloakroom sitting just off the kitchen. The sitting room for the property has a feature fireplace and a door leading out to a glazed conservatory that looks out to the garden. There is one double bedroom with an ensuite shower room. The property is not listed but is of special architectural interest and has an abundance of character both inside and out. The ceilings are all double height and vaulted giving a great sense of space and to the outside the original Victorian brickwork, shaped slate tiles on the roof, lead work, chimney and dovecote all add to the unique qualities of this period home.

The wonderful garden is a generous space that has been lovingly cared for over the years and has an abundance of mature floral and shrub borders as well as several specimen trees providing year-round interest. The garden sits on the south side of the property and enjoys a sunny aspect for the majority of the day. There is ample off-road parking on the gravel driveway and a detached brick built single garage.

This one-off village property would benefit from a scale of upgrading and modernisation throughout and offers the next owner huge potential subject to the necessary consents to extend and enlarge the current footprint to take advantage of the generous plot size. A rare visitor to the open market and one that must be viewed to be appreciated.

The beautiful village of Knossington lies on the Rutland/Leicestershire border, just four miles West of the market town of Oakham. Knossington has a very popular pub, The Fox and Hounds and is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside providing numerous bridle ways and footpaths for walking. Nearby Oakham and Uppingham provide a wide range of amenities with train services from Market Harborough and Peterborough to London. The local schooling is very well catered for both in the state and private sector with a choice of primary schools nearby.

Services & Council Tax
The property is offered to the market with all mains services and is heated by electric storage heaters and a back boiler behind the open fire. Please note, the back boiler is not currently operational.
